Hi all, Jwolf here.
We’re back from Adepticon and moving into full swing with preparation for WARGamesCon here in Austin, July 8-10 at the Doubletree Hotel. So our local points value is up from 1850 to 2000 again, and it’s time to playtest the missions.
In previous years, the missions have had complex elements that slowed some players down; this year’s missions will still have some flavor, but will be overall more straightforward. With no further ado, here is Primer Mission #1:
Game Length: Random
Deployment: Pitched Battle
Primary: (13 points) Annihilation
Secondary: (10 points) Seize Ground (4 objectives). Before rolling for deployment, alternate placing 2 objectives per player. No objectives within 12” of each other or a board edge.
Tertiary: (7 points) Move Out! Whichever player has a unit closest to the opposing board edge at the end of the game wins this objective. If both players have units touching the opposing board edge, score 4 points each.
With the release of the Grey Knights Codex, we have a lot of new army concepts to balance out for WARGamesCon. For instance, the tertiary objective in this mission used to be infantry only, but Shunt moves make that trivial for Grey Knights, so we modified this to any unit.
More Primer Missions will be up on the WARGamesCon website in the next week, so keep your eye out.
